|The club was started in 1988 with regular meetings
taking place in the centre on the last Monday of
every month. The first meeting attracted 25 people
who became members and some are still members of the
club today. At the present time the membership stands
152 with each meeting attracting some 65 to 70 people
The club has no office bearers, it is run by John and
Norma Shannon, owners of the centre.
Topics each month are always relevant to the time of
year, occasionally speakers are brought in on
specific subjects, i.e. Fuchsia, Cacti, Bonsai or
even a talk on wild birds around the garden.
Otherwise the meetings are taken by John.
The meetings always start on time at 7.30pm and
finish at 8.30pm sharp. This allows people to look
around and buy any products they wish, or ask advice
The benefits of being a member are monthly meetings:
10% discount off most purchases, 20% on garden club
nights only, regular newsletters and once a year we
have a visit out of the centre.
